Crystal Radial Distribution Calculator

CRAD: Crystal RADial distribution calculation

We remind STFC domain users that a CRAD generator is now in place in
CrystalWorks. It is available via the "Coordinates and Generators"

CRAD is an interactive option which reads crystal data. The crystal
asymmetric unit is expanded by applying space group symmetry and
lattice translations. Distances involving a selected central atom are
calculated and sorted for display.

At present it gives very similar output to that produced by the old
command line CRAD program which ran on the CDS server for logged on
users over any years.

Changing the output options would be relatively easy to meet the
current needs of EXAFS and other users. We welcome any feedback on
changing and improving the output format.
